among white women. five points among independents. he won all the groups by more than george w. bush did in 2004. but he lost the election by a wider margin than john kerry. why? because the composition of the electorate changed. as the obama campaign predicted more than a year ago, the white portion dropped from 2008 to 72% in 2012. the president carried nearly eight in ten nonwhite voters including astounding 71% of latinos, 73% of the asian voters and 93% of black voters. remains a real question why the democratic nominee can hold the obama coalition together but the republican party is right to be reexamining the relationship with minorities. finally, lesson four, don't ignore the data. the polls matter and more are right than wrong. though public polling consistently showed the president ahead, the romney campaign sin veerly believed that romney would win. why? they assumed it would be wider and older than it was. the enthusiasm numbers favored them but they didn't have enough voters. many republicans bought in to an alternative polling universe. created by some media pollster m

, in just six days, a 2% payroll tax is set to expire, along with the bush era tax cuts, shrinking the average workers' paycheck in 2013 by about $1,500. long-term unemployment benefits for about two million jobless americans are also set to expire, and $110 billion worth of spending cuts to both domestic and defense programs will start to kick in, forcing layoffs in the public sector and for some private sector government contractors. economists predict that if congress doesn't act, all those cuts and new taxes will push the economy back into a mild recession by mid-2013. the impact of some of these cuts and taxes would not be felt immediately on january 1. that's because the i.r.s. and other agencies didn't expect it to come to this, and so it will take a few weeks for workers to see more money being withheld in their paychecks, jim. >> axelrod: nancy cordes with the president in hawaii. thank you. there is new evidence that the housing market is coming back. a report out today showed home prices were up 4.3% in october compared to last year. prices rose in 18 of the 20 largest citie
